Throughout September and the next couple of months, John Legend is performing in cities across Europe for his Darkness and Light tour. Several cities in the UK are also included such as: Manchester, Liverpool, and Cardiff. The ten-time Grammy Award-winning singer took to the stage at 9.00pm on Saturday 16 September at the Manchester Arena.
The excitement to the lead-up of seeing John Legend
I remember the day I purchased the tickets via Live Nation UK for the Manchester date. I was on my lunch break at work and I went running into the office to grab my purse once it said I was through to the transaction stage. That’s it – I had a big smile on my face because me and Danny were going to see John Legend. We were lucky enough already to have seen Ed Sheeran at the O2 in June.
Supporting act, Jack Savoretti opened the evening with a range of his songs. We hadn’t heard his songs before. We were pleased to see he had a good voice and wasn’t one those supporting arts that you aren’t too keen on. But of course, we were here for the main event – the one and only, John Legend.
Everyone began to scream and that’s the moment we all knew that John was there on stage. From the first song to the last, you could see the amount of passion John put into his songs. You could see the sweat dripping from his face and his shirt. This didn’t stop him though. He carried on delivering his incredible performance.
